A dam is a barrier that impounds water and generally serves the primary purpose of retaining water. Wisconsin law defines a dam as "any artificial barrier in or across a watercourse which has the primary purpose of impounding or diverting water and includes all appurtenant works, such as a dike, canal or powerhouse".
